3.8/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web
Devoted to the artists, writers, and composers of the Romantic period, Musée de la Vie romantique was the Paris base of Dutch-born painter Ary Scheffer (1795–1858). For decades, Scheffer and his daughter hosted Friday evening salons, attracting the likes of George Sand, Frederic Chopin, Eugène Delacroix, Franz Liszt, Gioacchino Rossini, and singer Pauline Viardot. Later in the century, Charles Dickens, Ivan Turgueniev, and Charles Gounod attended regularly. The museum displays numerous mementos of these luminaries, as well as Romantic-era paintings, sculptures, and objets d'art.

  • This museum has an ideal setting, with typical atmosphere and the outdoor lounge, very nice. The exhibition I attended was yet quite incomplete, the eye from Baudelaire, who deserved to be more successful... Moreover, the visit is a bit too short for the price of admission, but places are nice, with a beautiful lounge George Sand. It is very chic and very Parisian.

  • On the way to Montmartre and the entrance is a little hard to understand. Building seems to go into the alley. You can stream music and piano and painting rooms on the 2nd floor up the stairs, Chopin and other fellow musicians had gathered and variously embraced imagination.

  • Opportunity to meet a 19TH century House and see how people lived. This off the traditional tourist circuit. Beautiful paintings and furniture in a very pleasant environment. Special garden

  • Small interesting museum, mainly focusing on Georges sand and her feminist past. Lovely garden when you can sit and have a wonderful cup of tea
  • While we loved the visit to this beautiful little museum, my wife and I were disappointed to find that the tea garden is now permanently closed, so keep that in mind when visiting.
  • We visited just for a coffee, so can't comment about the museum itself, but the garden is amazing! Like a small park inside Pigalle.
  • There is an awful lot about George Sand in this museum. There is also a cast of Chopin's hand which is of course exquisite. The house is beautiful and very atmospheric. The garden is an oasis of greenery in the middle of Paris, and has a restful cafe with shady outdoor seating.
  • Worth a visit to see Chopin's hand (so small!)
